PS5 STOCK UPDATE -
Friday 25, 8:00am - More PS5 stock for the standard edition and digital edition are going live today! In the UK, more stock has been confirmed for Argos, GAME, and Smyths from 9:00am BST onwards.
It's possible Tesco could also have more stock. They were one of the first stockists when pre-orders initially went live. So it's possible. They're also one of the biggest retailers in the UK, so it would make sense if they were allocated more stock.
We'll be checking ourselves and dropping links below as soon as they become live. Otherwise, click the link above to buy from those three confirmed retailers, instead.
Original Story - The Sony PlayStation showcase was packed with big reveals and exclusive new looks at some outstanding games coming to next-gen consoles.
But we shouldn't kid ourselves that the most important details revealed were both the price and release date for the new PS5 console.
It's a bit of a shame that those in the UK and Europe will have to wait an extra week to get their hands on the console compared to other parts of the world.
But, none of that is going to matter if you can't secure your PS5 early with a pre-order in the first place.
Whilst most people will naturally gravitate towards the usual sites to pick up a pre-order, such as GAME and Amazon, it's worth remembering that sometimes the best places to look are the more unconventional.
Like Supermarkets. No, really.
It sounds weird, but we all know the likes of Tesco, Sainsbury's, ASDA, and Morrisons all have large entertainment sections. You just don't really think about them, except when you're bored and wandering the aisle when you should be doing the weekly shop (Or is that just me?)
The point is, don't ignore these massive supermarkets to help secure your PS5 pre-order. Which brings us neatly onto the question at hand for one of the biggest stores in the UK.
Can you pre-order PS5 at Tesco?
Pre-orders for the Sony PS5 have already gone live on the Tesco website.
In fact, it looks as though the major supermarket retailer was one of the first stores in the UK to have the console on sale following the PS5 showcase.
Naturally though, stock sold out incredibly quickly. Just as it had with GAME, Smyths Toys, and a few other retailers on Wednesday evening. But not Argos, who are waiting until Friday before going live with their PS5 pre-orders.
Based on the pre-order page for Tesco - tescopreorders.com/uk/ps5 - it looks as though the supermarket are only selling the standard edition PS5 console.
So, Tesco doesn't appear to be selling the PS5 digital edition from the looks of things. If that's the console of choice you're after, it might be time to start thinking of trying to pre-order from somewhere else (when stock is available).
What is the PS5 price from Tesco?
For those curious, or perhaps determined to buy from Tesco at some point in the future, the supermarket is selling the PS5 standard edition for £449.99.
Though it's worth noting that Tesco also says"Retail Price Subject To Change Until Release Date".
